"And then there were three..."

Former X Factor contestant Katie Waissel has given birth to her first child.


The singer, who featured in the 2010 series of the ITV competition, confirmed her happy news in a sweet social media post on Saturday.

She simply tweeted: "And then there were three..."

She shared the message alongside a blue love heart, leading some fans to think she had given birth to a baby boy.


The singer announced she and her partner, Andy Speer, were expecting in January this year with an open letter to her fans.

Alongside the letter she shared a photo of her baby bump and ultrasound picture.

In the background of the picture, there was a sign reading: 'Baby Speer coming Summer 2018'.


She wrote:

"So today is officially the day that I get to share the greatest blessings on earth with you!

"For those who have been such a huge part of my journey over the years, you will know that life certainly hasn’t always thrown me roses however it has honestly been perfectly imperfect.

"The amazing thing is, life threw me all the tools I could possibly need to build and craft such an incredible future and now I can say this rose bush has blossomed into such beautiful flowers.



"You have watched me at my most vulnerable, and my most fearless, through some incredibly tough times and followed me right by my side through to the shining light at the end of some of the darkest tunnels.

"And now, you get to witness the greatest blessing life could bestow upon another human being.


"The gift of life! Andy and I are thrilled to announce that we are expecting! Overwhelmed and overjoyed, we couldn’t be more excited that we have created such an incredible human being and he isn’t even here yet!

"We thank you for all of your kind words, love and blessings and are excited to share this incredible journey with you! All our love, Katie & Andy x"
